  • Reflection Question
    Waste Choose Two-Sided Printing
    Choosing two-sided printing can be an easy adjustment on your computer settings. How can you help others make this same switch? Can it be encouraged company wide?

    The default setting on the print drivers is set to 2-sided already. You have to go into setting to change this.  So it's good that KSC did this already!

    Waste Skip the Straw
    How could you incorporate other "R's" -- reduce, reuse, refuse, repair, repurpose, etc. -- into your lifestyle?

    I could do a better job of recycling batteries.
  • Reflection Question
    Waste Use a Reusable Water Bottle
    While water bottles serve an important role in places for health and safety, we can do more to reduce the unnecessary use of them. Can you identify the barriers in making this a new habit? How can you set yourself up for success in making this a permanent change?

    A huge barrier is purchasing a reusable water bottle, which can cost about $20 for a good one.
